Last month, we announced our excitement to work with the team at the Grand Central Hotel. Since signing, the KDPR team have hit the ground running, adorning the beautiful heritage building in poppies for a public art installation, paying homage to all Australian diggers.

The collaborative tribute, which featured handmade poppies inscribed with peace messages by Brisbane school children and was designed by Brisbane artist and architect, Suzanne Bosanquet, has been featured on the ABC, Channel 7, both the Sunday and Courier Mail as well as many more.

We would like to thank All Hallows’ School, Ambrose Treacy College, Brisbane Girls Grammar School, Somerville House and West End State School, for being part of this project and contributing to Brisbane’s first poppy wall installation.

The installation will remain up for the next two weeks.

There is a lot more in store for the Grand Central Hotel over the coming months and the team are looking forward to some riotous activations and sharing the history of the hotel with you all.
